Industrial cybersecurity company Dragos has partnered with the National Security Agency and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure to help facilitate the transfer of intelligence between industrial controls systems and operational technology networks.
Federal analysts will use the Neighborhood Keeper network to view anonymous intelligence about threats, vulnerabilities and compromises facing industrial infrastructure systems and to share the information to other connected industry members in real-time, the company said Monday.
According to Dragons, joining the Neighborhood Keeper would enable NSA and CISA to support the infrastructure community’s cybersecurity posture without requiring affected companies to reveal any sensitive or identifying data.
“Today, having the NSA and CISA join Neighborhood Keeper as Trusted Advisors further advances the ability of industry and government to bolster our nation’s OT cybersecurity in a way that respects and protects data integrity and identity while providing meaningful insights,” said Robert Lee, CEO and co-founder of Dragos.
Since its launch in 2019, the Dragos information-sharing network has been in use by various organizations for monitoring electricity, oil and natural gas systems.
